Aesthetic Services

Aesthetic services are a category of medical procedures that are usually minimally invasive and offer significant enhancements and corrections of common skin conditions. 

Awaken Your Best Self

Sophia Loren once said that beauty is how you feel on the inside. When our appearance doesn’t match how we feel, we experience a dissonance that can negatively affect our self-esteem. Our services help awaken your inner beauty and align your outer appearance with how you feel inside. They can also help reverse the flow of time and rejuvenate your facial features.

You can schedule a consultation online or call our office at 650-254-1200.

Emsculpt 

If you have stubborn bulges that don’t respond to diet or exercise, EmSculpt provides an ideal solution.

EmSculpt is an innovative treatment that builds muscle tone and burns fat in the abdomen or buttocks. EmSculpt employs a technology called High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM) that is designed to flex your muscles at a rate impossible to achieve with ordinary exercise. In a 30-minute session, your muscles will contract 20,000 times! Imagine trying to do 20,000 crunches in 30 minutes. HIFEM triggers a process called supramaximal lipolysis which leads to the breakdown of fat tissue. EmSculpt isn’t intended as a replacement for healthy exercise. Instead, it can supplement a healthy lifestyle by contouring the body in ways that can’t be achieved by diet and exercise alone.

Hair Restoration 

Pattern hair loss is a condition that can affect men and women. Hair loss can negatively impact a patient’s body image and lead to insecurities. Hair restoration can help revive your hair and your self-confidence.

We utilize the latest in platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments to help promote new hair growth in a natural manner.

Platelet-rich plasma leverages the natural regenerative ability in our blood to spur hair growth. The process involves harvesting a small sample of blood, then purifying it. The process concentrates the platelet-rich plasma for maximum benefit and then reinjects it into the scalp. We recommend monthly sessions for the first three or four months after the initial session, then follow-up appointments three or four times a year for optimal results.

HydraFacial 

HydraFacials clear the pores, moisturize the skin and help resolve blemishes and irregularities.

HydraFacials are an innovative treatment that combines several methods to exfoliate, hydrate, and rejuvenate the face. The four-phase HydraFacial process begins by using a patented applicator to exfoliate the skin. This sweeps away the dead cells on the outer layer of skin. The second phase uses salicylic acid to cleanse the skin of cellular chaff and leftover oils. The third stage employs a gentle vacuuming method to clear out blackheads and help resolve other conditions. The fourth and final step involves an infusion of vital elements into the skin including antioxidants, peptics, and hyaluronic acid. The final step provides a boost in long term hydration. The entire process represents the evolution of skin care and maintenance. By providing hydration and exfoliation together, there is less irritation and a shorter recovery period.[1]

Microneedling 

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that aims to trigger the body’s natural regenerative processes.

Collagen and elastin are essential building blocks that support healthy skin. They are fibers that form a net called the extracellular matrix (ECM). As we age, the ECM naturally deteriorates, which saps our skin of volume and the tautness of youth. Microneedling uses tiny needles that roll over our complexion and create micro-punctures in the layers of skin. This triggers the body’s natural regenerative process which stimulations the synthesis of new collagen and elastin. Microneedling can be combined with platelet-rich plasma treatments for a two-pronged approach to skin rejuvenation. 

Nova Thread Lift 

Nova Thread Lifts tighten loose skin and help recontour the head and neck for a more youthful profile.

A Nova Thread Lift offers a non-surgical alternative to the traditional facelift. Nova Thread Lifts involve a small injection of special polydioxanone (PDO) threads in strategic locations that create a measured lifting effect. PDO threads are flexible and durable and offer a skilled practitioner an elegant means of tightening the skin. We use several types of threads, each of which provide different benefits. These can be combined to create a customizable treatment that can refine facial contours in addition to producing taut skin. Eventually, the threads will dissolve since they are biocompatible, but the benefits will continue as the process triggers the synthesis of new collagen and elastin. Your body’s own proteins will remodel the ECM and restore youthful function to mature skin.

Renuvion/J-Plasma/J-Plasty

Renuvion/J-Plasma/J-Plasty

Renuvion uses an innovative, proprietary system to deliver thermal energy to the deepest layer of the skin (subcutaneous layer). The Renuvion system combines radiofrequency energy with helium to increase skin tautness by rebuilding elastin and collagen. The unique process uses radiofrequency energy to transform helium gas into a low-temperature plasma, which means the patient experiences minimal discomfort and little downtime but maximum benefits. This procedure also aims to leverage the body’s natural healing processes to restore the skin’s support network to a more youthful state.

Case studies show amazing results at skin tightening, increasing definition around the face and neck for improved facial contours.[2]

ThermiTight

ThermiTight also uses radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin in select locations such as the neck. ThermiTight utilizes a special infrared camera to measure the amount of heat and control the process to ensure optimal results without damaging any surrounding tissue. The process promotes the remodeling of the collagen and elastin network and leverages the body to naturally tighten the skin in targeted locations.

Ultherapy

Ultherapy

Ultherapy gained national recognition when a number of celebrities publicly touted its benefits. Jennifer Aniston and Christie Brinkley are among those that have gone on record talking about Ultherapy. Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to address common concerns about sagging skin that can’t be resolved through diet and exercise. Ultherapy has been clinically shown to boost collagen production and strengthen the skin and improve skin elasticity.

Studies found Ultherapy to be very effective and safe at treating mild to moderate skin and soft tissue laxity.[3]
